A Comparison of Sony Xperia Z5 and Huawei P9 Lite

If you’re shopping around for a new smartphone but are looking for something other than iPhones and Samsung devices, why not take a look at the Xperia Z5 and the Huawei P9 Lite? These are two of the latest and the best offerings from Japanese tech giant Sony and Chinese ICT provider Huawei, respectively, reflecting the technical advances that these two companies have developed over the years and giving users access to a wide range of exciting features.


On the surface, the Xperia Z5 and the Huawei P9 Lite have many things in common. They both have 5.2-inch screens that have a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, 3 GB of RAM, and a microSD slot that can support up to 256 GB of external memory. They also have a fingerprint sensor, an HTML5 browser, Bluetooth 4.1 (which promotes fast data transfers), and a non-removable battery that’s around 3000 mAh in capacity. They’re around 0.30 inches thin, which means they won’t take up a lot of space whether you put them in your bag or slide them in your pocket.

However, there are also significant differences between the Xperia Z5 and the Huawei P9 Lite. Even though they can both run on Android Marshmallow, they differ in their internal specs, with the Xperia Z5 running on the Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 processor and the Huawei P9 Lite running on HiSilicon Kirin 650.

The two units also differ in camera features, with the Xperia Z5 leading the way on its 23 MP rear camera and video recording capabilities that can reach 2160p at 30 frames per second. The Huawei P9 Lite lags behind with its 13 MP camera and video recording capabilities of 1080p at 30 frames per second, although it makes up for this with its 8 MP front camera that’s perfect for selfies (the Xperia Z5 has a relatively smaller 5.1 MP front camera).

In terms of body design, the Xperia Z5 is slightly better than the P9 Lite. Its screen is made of scratch-resistant glass with oleophobic coating that helps it last for a long time, and it’s IP68 certified, which means it’s dust-proof and water-resistant over 1.5 meters and for 30 minutes.

All in all, the Xperia Z5 and the Huawei P9 Lite are some of the best phones in the market. If you’re looking for a smartphone that can withstand rough conditions, and if price isn’t an issue for you, the Xperia Z5 is one of your best options. Meanwhile, if you want to have a decent phone with modern features at a reasonable price, you definitely won’t go wrong with choosing the Huawei P9 Lite.
